Device Overview

Summary

The Switchtec Gen 4 PM40100 PFX Fanout PCIe switch is a high reliability, high performance switch with significant power, cost, and board space supporting 100 lanes, 52 ports, and hot- and surprise-plug controllers for each port.  PFX switches features advanced error containment, comprehensive diagnostics and debug capabilities, end-to-end dat integrity protection, high-quality, low power SERDES and secure boot image authentication.

Typical applications for the PFX family include data center equipment, defense and industrial servers, workstations, test equipment, video production and broadcasting equipment, cellular infrastructure, access networks, metro networks and core networking.
